Full U.S. Mandarin immersion school list

Updated September 10, 2016.

As always, please tell me if you know of a school that’s not listed here and should be, or one whose listing contains errors. I strive to keep the list as up to date as possible but don’t always hear about new schools or changes.

=======

Click the link below to open the full Mandarin Immersion School list:

mip-list-2016-09-10

Clicking on the link above will open an Excel spread sheet containing all the Mandarin immersion K – 12 schools I’ve been able to find in the United States and Internationally. It was last updated on April 6, 2016.

Note that in the column listing grades offered, 0 = Kindergarten. That way it’s easier to sort by grade, Excel didn’t know what to do with K’s. So 0 – 5 means the school offers immersion in Kindergarten through fifth grade.

I’ve limited the list to full-time immersion schools which teach at least 50% of the time in Mandarin. That’s why there are no preschools or Saturday school on it.

The first page is U.S. schools. Click on the International tab at the bottom of the Excel spreadsheet to see the schools outside of the U.S. I’ve been able to find.

Thanks

Elizabeth Weise, Mandarin Immersion Parents Council

    I read with interest the article in the Wall Street Journal which lead me to this website and your listing of Chinese immersion schools.

    My children attended the Chinese International School in Hong Kong, http://www.cis.edu.hk/. Each of my daughters studied at CIS for 14 years. As Eurasians, half Chinese / half British, born and educated in Hong Kong and having both obtained the International Baccularete after graduating high school, both were offered places at prestigious universities in North America, Europe, Australia and Asia. For their own reasons, possibily to discover their British heritage, both elected to do their undergraduate degrees in Britain. Whilst my youngest daughter is about to start the last year of her degree, my eldest daughter who completed her post graduate studies is now an attorney (solicitor) based in Hong Kong for an international law firm.

    There are now several international (private fee paying school) schools in Hong Kong which follow the CIS model of full teaching in dual language, rather than offering Chinese as a second or third language. CIS celebrated it’s 25th anniversary a few years ago and whilst you are all embarking upon a challenging and difficult route for your children, it is a rewarding one and one with a very positive future for your children as the Hong Kong (and other similar schools through out Asia) experience shows.

      According to their website, they only teach an hour and a half a day of Chinese, which becomes less in grades 4 and up, and they don’t teach content in Chinese. This would make them a FLES (Foreign Language in Elementary School) program, but not immersion. I’ll call the school to confirm.

      Besides the ones that you have listed, there are also:

      Hong Kong Academy http://www.hkacademy.edu.hk

      The Canadian International School http://www.cdnis.edu.hk (perhaps not fully immersive but the Mandarin programme is well respected)

      Kiangsu & Chekiang http://www.kcis.edu.hk

      Victoria Shanghai Academy http://www.vsa.edu.hk/en/

      Yew Chung International School http://www.ycis-hk.com (I understand they have campuses in North America)

      For those who may not be familiar with the three schools that you have mentioned, I also list those below. My two daughter went from Reception to Year 13 at Chinese International School and it more than achieved what we sought for our girls in terms of bi and tri lingual education. Having completed University studies overseas, both have chosen to return to Hong Kong where they are working professionals.

      Chinese International school https://www.cis.edu.hk

      The ISF Academy http://www.isf.edu.hk/en

      The Singapore International School http://www.singapore.edu.hk

      There are other schools which offer Mandarin programmes, but the above are probably the most immersive. Hong Kong, because of its relatively high expatriate population has many other international schools offering education in German, French, Norwegian, etc.

    School name: Broadway Elementary in LA Unified school district. I went to the school three weeks ago, and the principal told me they are now one-way Mandarin immersion rather than two-way.

    Another school: Field Elementary in Pasadena is actually named Eugene Field Elementary School. When I looked for their School Accountability Report Card in California Department of Education, I was not able to find it if I only type in “Field”. According to my on-site observation couple weeks ago, the Mandarin coordinator told me that they are one-way rather than two-way, due to the lack of native Mandarin speakers enrolled in the school. So basically there are only one large language group (Native English speakers) learning Mandarin. Same reason as Broadway that I mentioned above.

    By the way, thank you so much Elizabeth. I appreciate for your dedication in Mandarin immersion program. I am currently doing my Mandarin immersion research for my MA thesis. Your information helped me A LOTTTTTT!!!!

      Hi Allie,
      Thanks for these updates. I expect that many of the schools that say they’re two-way are in fact de facto one-way because they have very few native Chinese speakers. I’d be curious to hear if schools are considering Cantonese speakers in the native speaker for Mandarin immersion programs, or if they only consider Mandarin speakers as native. And please send along your research when it’s done, I’d love to read it.

        I think schools are considering Cantonese speakers as “partial” native speakers for the Mandarin immersion program, as you might know that Cantonese and Mandarin are using the similar writing system (traditional or simplified) while the oral speaking is mutually unintelligible.
        My MA research is focusing on exploring the key factors that impact the model selection and implementation of a 90:10 or 50:50 Mandarin immersion program. Do you have any idea or any related academic articles in mind?

        Since I just started the volunteering in one of the schools, I am not quite familiar with the schools yet. I will say Broadway Elementary is a very academically rigorous Mandarin program. For Field Elementary, I think 90:10 model is not very common for Mandarin immersion programs in at least Southern California, we need more research on the 90:10 Mandarin immersion programs.

      Added.
      So does the school teach simplified or traditional characters? And is it one way or two way immersion (do you have native Mandarin speakers who are learning English as well as native English speakers learning Mandarin?)

      What are the percentages of the day taught in English, Mandarin and Spanish? And does it teach simplified or traditional characters? I’ve called the school in the past to get more information but hadn’t gotten called back.

    I am from England and plan to visit Vancouver for a month Sept-Oct 2016. I would like to visit an immersion Mandarin-English preschool (0-4 years old). I would be grateful if you could recommend some pre-schools within travel distance of Vancouver (Canada) that I could visit. Many thanks in anticipation.
